North East Tasmania

From on high, the rich farming hinterland of Tasmania’s North East appears as a patchwork quilt of deep chocolate soil, bountiful crops and verdant pasture. Here and there a decoration of neatly ordered vineyards and hopfields.

It’s a true reflection of the area’s role as part of Australia’s food and beverage bowl.

From the ground you can reach out and touch the intricate stitching of this living quilt, hemmed on most sides by untamed nature. Dense forests cling to mountainous terrain rent by gorges gurgling with gin-clear creeks or there’s mile after deserted mile of white-sand beaches kissed by the waves of Bass Strait and the Tasman Sea.

There’s human heritage too … hidden in the valleys where miners once scoured a fortune from the tin bearing granite soils. Tin opened up much of the North East and its impact can be traced along the Trail of the Tin Dragon route.

You need to experience it for real … but you can start with a virtual tour right here…. 

In Mount William National Park, near Musselroe Bay, experience close encounters with Forester kangaroos and other Tasmanian wildlife in their natural environment.

In the  regional centre of Scottsdale, visit the Forest EcoCentre, showcasing the forest ecology, fine timbers and rich heritage of the North East. In the old mining settlements of Derby and Weldborough, explore the glory days of tin.

All along the North East Trail, you’ll find a warm, friendly welcome from people who enjoy helping visitors ease into the relaxed, local lifestyle. Take your time, don’t hurry. Packing in all of the North East Trail into less than a few days is more a trial than a trail. Take some time to smell the roses … and the lavender and the wine and the cheese and the forest and the sea air. It’s all waiting for you to smell, touch, taste and listen to, then to sing its praises too.
